I attended the RM St Louis auction of the Fred Guyton Collection yesterday. The Travelodge and the 1701 Coupe found new owners. The Model C went for about 35k, and the Coupe for about 70k. Interesting event, with lots of interesting cars, most selling for high numbers. I have no idea if the new owners are PAS members.
I was a phone bidder and was hoping to get the trailer that went for 40K with a 20% fee. It’s interesting that a 1937 Pierce Arrow Coupe went right before the trailer. I did not get it.
The trailer was a good value, I already have a restored Model B, and didn’t want another. I would have appraised it at 60k. Ed
Ed, what do you think of the ’37 coupe price?
Call me and Iâ€™ll give you an opinion in private. I donâ€™t want to irritate a potential new member. I thought the travel trailer was a bargin. One must also remember that you have to look at the value of the dollar compared to other things available and the price range. So itâ€™s not just what the Pierce arrow will sell for, itâ€™s what can you get for that same amount of money that may be a better car or a better model. I think things are going to revert back to like they were in the 70s and 80s where the open cars will be changing hands quite easily but the four-door sedanâ€˜s are going to be a very hard sell. Very hard.
